I am semi-retired as a writer, author, teacher and horticulturist. I like to garden, teach others to garden, travel and visit with friends.

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

Although I am retired I still teach classes on desert gardening and farming, I just limit my classes to the winter and early spring to allow myself time to travel when I feel like it.

I 'glamp' in a 22-foot Airstream Interstate. My first trip was 18,000 miles around the USA and Canada, which took 5 months. Now I am doing shorter trips back to places I really enjoyed.

There are wonderful fruits and vegetables growing here in my garden and I make them available here and at the Farmer's Market.

Skills & Expertise to Share

I like to sing and have a karaoke machine. I like to play Scrabble and Yahtzee, bridge and hearts, gin rummy, etc.

Tomato Lady's Pets

I have a Yorkshire Terrier and a flock of hens for fresh eggs.

Tomato Lady's Rig

Rig Type: Class B

22 feet long

I drive a 22-ft Airstream Interstate, and I sometimes have my motor scooter on a lift behind it. It is a "Class B" and does not have slide-outs. It is a tan and brown color which I refer to as the color of dirt. Some call this 'taupe.' My motor scooter is "taupe." I think it is a very pretty/classy rig, although small.

Spectacular Host!

The Tomato Lady is an awesome host! Fun-loving, personable, smart, and a great fellow boondocker! We loved our stay at her place. Next time we are in Vegas we will definitely call on her again. Thank you so much!

Green Oasis in Vegas

We stayed here for 2 nights and found a great place with a beautiful garden and just a 15-Minute Uber Ride away from the strip. L was a great and welcoming host and made us feel like at home.

Very gracious host

We spent a delightful evening with our intriguing host. She very soon made us feel like friends. We look forward to returning her hospitality when she travels our way. Address easy to find and close to "the Strip". Thank you for our pleasant sojourn.

Very Nice Host, Warm and Caring, safe place for a female traveling along.

I stayed two nights parked in her driveway. She offered fresh eggs from her chickens for breakfast. Even allowed me to use her shower and plugged my trailer into her power. Awesome lady with interesting organic fruit and veggie beds in her yard. Nice to have a safe place while traveling along. Highly recommend.

Very caring host

We had such a lovely time with Tomato Lady, really enjoyed her company. She is a very busy person but she took time out to share with us. We leave with fond memories of Vegas. Please keep in touch.

Very Warm Host

We stayed 2 nights after having a tour of her garden/yard and learning about her gardening experiences. She not only allowed us to stay in her driveway but also allowed us to use her power. From her place it was easy to get down to the strip. Thank for the place to stay Leslie, hope to see you again in the future.

A delightful host and a trouble free holiday in Las Vegas

I stayed two nights, parked in front of her house in the very heart of Las Vegas. Getting back and forth to the strip was easy and quick. The Tomato Lady is aptly named as she is an expert on gardening and very willing to share her ideas and expertise. I purchased some tomato seeds from her that are especially for producing tomatoes in the hot desert sun. Once again, the Boondockers have made RV travel for me (a single lady) an enjoyable and safe occurrence.

extremely welcoming and friendly

Leslie is very friendly and incredibly welcoming lady, and not only allowed us to park in her driveway, but also very generously allowed us use of her power during our stay. As we are travelling with 10 m.o. baby Leslie also gave us a ride to downtown and to the Strip. THANK YOU LESLIE :* Her spot was big enough for our 23 feet with slide rig. Access to her drive was very easy. We were very pleased to be able to stay with Leslie during our time in the area and would not hesitate to stay there again in the future if the space is available!
